      Planning

      This trip was originally planned for the first three weeks of September 2012 as I wanted to complete the trip before onset of winter. But, due to a trip to Ooty on 15/16 September 2012, it was postponed.

      This was the actual itinerary of the trip:

      And, this was the actual route that my Linea took during the trip:



      Except HPPWD Rest House @ Chhitkul and Hotel Highway Inn attached to Bharat Petroleum outlet on NH 21 near Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh, all other hotels were selected based on the online reviews and accommodation reserved online well in advance.

      Originally, I decided to start the Kinnaur-Spiti-Lahaul circuit from Shimla and return via Shimla, instead of Rohthang, in view of very bad road conditions from Kunzam Pass>Batal>Gramphoo>Rohthang. However, I changed my decision later and returned via Rohthang with more than 40 bottom-scraping thanks to the rocky, bouldery, stony track many stretches of which ran by the side of Lahaul river.

      After Ooty trip, my Linea went for the fifth paid servicing at Concorde Motors, Mysore Road, Bangalore on 17 September 2012, when the engine oil was changed. However, I decided to have the tyre replacement done at Chandigarh as I wanted my Linea to step into the 50 k km mark as it was still in 49 k km at the beginning of the trip.

      More to come.
